Akrotiri village in Santorini

Akrotiri is one of the least known of Santorini's villages, even though everyone has heard of the name. The village is located above the much more famous archaeological site of the same name.

 

Akrotiri village. Santorini.

Akrotiri village.

 

 

I have visited Santorini about thirty times, but - it goes against the grain for me to say - I've never visited the village of Akrotiri. But I have driven past the village countless times on the way to the excavations in Akrotiri and to Red Beach. Next time I go to Santorini, I shall explore the village of Akrotiri. I have promised me that.

 

Akrotiri and the caldera in Santorini.

The village of Akrotiri is below the red arrow. The picture is taken from Imerovigli.


It is said that the village has good hotels, lots of fine churches, many local tavernas and incredibly beautiful views of the caldera. The advantage of staying in Akrotiri is that you are close to the excavations, Red beach and Caldera beach.

 

Wine from Akrotiri. Santorini.

On the way to Akrotiri, you can stay here and enjoy the view and maybe a glass of wine from Santorini. Akrotiri is visible to the left.

 

ACCOMMODATION IN AKROTIRI

As said, I've never been in Akrotiri and therefore I can not recommend any good hotel. At time of writing there are some 30 hotels and pensions to choose from on booking.com. You can find them through the link below.
